Nippon Labs AD-MINIDP-DVI-MF Mini Display Port Male to DVI Female Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Decent adapter, but no shortcuts 09/15/2012

This review is from: Nippon Labs AD-MINIDP-DVI-MF Mini Display Port Male to DVI Female Adapter

Pros: The adapter works well, and it's fairly long. The flexible cord is over six inches in length (not counting the hard plastic tips).

Cons: Has the four holes for an analog adapter, but these are non-functional. The plastic has a cheap feel to it, particularly around the DVI connector, but this is really a matter of feel and heft. I would not have concerns about the plastic cracking in my laptop bag.

Other Thoughts: Most of these adapters lack the holes necessary for daisy-chaining this adapter to a DVI to VGA adapter. Adapters (converters) capable of daisy-chaining like that are generally 10x more expensive than this adapter. I didn't buy this adapter specifically for that functionality, but wondered if I could save some money by using this with my Apple DVI > VGA, instead of buying a miniDP (Thunderbolt) > VGA adapter as well. Even though you can physically connect the adapters, I was not able to get the signal to pass through from a late 2011 Macbook Pro to a projector. Neither the system nor the projector responded with the connection was made. It's a fine miniDP to DVI adapter, but don't expect this to be anything more than that.

GeIL 16GB (2 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory Model GS316GB1600C10DC
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It's 16 GB DDR3 1600 with a CAS latency of 10 - you know what you're getting. This is "DBT enhanced" RAM, meaning that GeIL has put it through harsh testing and error-checking before shipping it out, which should decrease your chances of ending up with bad RAM. It survived a few passes through Memtest with no issues.

Cons: None - even the packaging was fairly easy to open.

Other Thoughts: This is installed in a "Late 2011" Macbook Pro (Macbook Pro 8,2) with no issues and operating at 1600 MHz. Amazing to think that just a few years ago, 16 GB of RAM was something that you only heard about in servers...

Rosewill Firewire Adapter 400 to 800 for PC/Mac RAD-RU-IEEE800-9P-6P
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Plain and Chunky 08/31/2012

This review is from: Rosewill Firewire Adapter 400 to 800 for PC/Mac RAD-RU-IEEE800-9P-6P

Pros: Low cost, gets the job done, whitish coloration matches other Apple cables.

Cons: The adapter is a bit on the chunky side. I'm using a "Late 2011" Macbook Pro where the ports are spaced very closely together. It's a very tight fit to have the Firewire plugged in alongside a Thunderbolt peripheral, and it looks like it would be similarly tight to get an ethernet cable plugged in. It works, but it's right up against my Thunderbolt connector...

Other Thoughts: Excellent adapter for the majority of people, I'd imagine. Macbook Pro users, it might be worth your while to go with a thinner adapter, or pony up for the Moshi adapter.
